11. Millenials use Adderall to get through college and enter the workforce addicted
from The New York Times
From Oct. 18
: Record numbers of college students use Adderral to get through college. The off-label use of prescription stimulants had come to represent the second-most-common form of illicit drug use in college by 2004. Only marijuana was more popular. And many of them enter the workplace addicted to the substance. In 2012, roughly 16 million Adderall prescriptions were written for adults between ages 20 and 39. Of concern is that very little is known about what Adderall does over years of use. To date, there is almost no research on the long-term effects on humans of using Adderall.
